Chief Mark Saunders will be announcing enhancements to the Neighbourhood Community Officer Program (NCOP) at a news conference on Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. in the Toronto Police Service Headquarters Media Gallery.

Watch the News Conference. The conference is also available on Bell TOC.

Neighbourhood Community Officers work in partnership with local residents and community-based organizations to address crime, disorder and community safety issues.

The program was first introduced in 2013 across the city and evolved through community consultation and Humber College independent research to develop the best practices that are being rolled out in Fall 2019.

Humber College Faculty of Social and Community Services Professor Doug Thomson will update the media on independent research on the NCOP.

Neighbourhood Community Officers and community members will also be available to speak to the media.

Please note that, for the safety of employees and visitors, all persons entering Toronto Police Service headquarters must go through security screening. You are not required to submit to screening. You may leave at any time but, if you do not consent to this screening, you will be denied entry. Thank you for your cooperation.
